Teen girl located, man arrested

SALEM – A missing 13-year-old girl and the 22-year-old man police believe she ran away with were located Friday shortly before noon, less than 24 hours after law enforcement asked for help from the public.

Charles Bryant Edwards II was arrested and Tiffany Ann Traxel were found near horse stables on Millbrook Street at the Salem-Roanoke City line, Salem Police said.

Edwards was charged with taking indecent liberties with a minor child under the age of 15, which is a class 5 felony, and was taken to the Roanoke County-Salem Jail.

Police said the girl, who was returned to her parents, and Edwards were seen leaving a residence on Elizabeth Avenue Jan. 13.
